The Great Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu, often talked of the Ancient Ones in his writings, much as Confucius did. They were wise and knowledgeable, human beings that were as gods powerful, good, loving, and all-knowing. These ancients apparently lived in a secret, remote area of China or Tibet, guarding the wisdom of the ages.
Born around 604BC, Lao Tzu wrote the book which is still perhaps the most famous Chinese classic of all time the Tao Te Ching. When he finally left China, at the close of his very long life, he journeyed to the west, to the legendary land of His Wang Mu, to seek the headquarters of the Ancient Ones, the Great White Brotherhood. It was as he was leaving, at one of the border posts of China, that a guard persuaded him to write down the Tao Te Ching, so that Lao Tzus wisdom would not bee lost.
Ancient Masters were subtle,
No one ever heard of Lao Tzu again, and it presumed that he made it to the Land of His Wang Mu. His Wang Mu is another name for the popular Chinese Goddess Kuan Yin, the Merciful Guardian and Queen Mother of the West. Her land, traditionally located in the Kun Lun mountains, was known as the Abode of the Immortals and The Western Paradise.
